Huawei Ascend D1 Q press photos leak

We've known that Huawei had something special planned for Mobile World Congress, and this would appear to be it. The first entry in Huawei's Diamond line is the Ascend D1 Q, and TechOrz.com got their hands on some leaked press shots prior to Huawei's conference.
